If your mouse has a wheel use that to zoom in and out of the 2D map. Other than that, I don't think there is a way to expand it once you've zoomed in on an area.

At least that's what I've found.

Thanks er6, yes i read in the manual that the mouse wheel can be used for zooming in and out, unfortunately it seems all to no avail as i've tried that but for some reason it has no effect. I shall persevere regardless, Malc.

Try your mouse wheel on another game or application and if it fails it is faulty and you need a new mouse,Ive had dozens of them.

I sometimes find that the Map freezes after zooming one way or the other ( perhaps this is what malcwake is referring to ), toggling out and back in to Map View fixes this.

If interested to try, here's a little script I made a while back that remaps some of the mouse controls over to the Number-Pad keys:

Holding down the Right mouse button is the key. Click and hold the right button to drag the map to a new position. Also the scroll wheel will zoom the map in or out with the right button down. The map will zoom with the cursor position as center.

This may be an undocumented feature. Try it.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys, wheel works fine on other applications and have tried holding down right hand (also left),whilst using wheel but still to no avail, perhaps it's just a fault with my game, not a great problem and i still enjoy the rest of the game but thanks again anyway, Malc.

Y'all are back off topic again? The Fun Patrol is gonna crank down on us if you're not careful!

As to the O/P, I find the same issue that Andy talked about, sometimes the 2D map seems to freeze as far as zoom in/ out, I can still drag it around, but have to exit then go back in to get the zoom to work again.

This must be a common thing as I also get this problem.

Probably caused by the RW engine trying to redraw the map quickly, whilst still keeping the 3D view drawn underneath.
The 2D Map is pretty useless anyway - you can't read any locations because they are overprinted with six others (slight exaggeration).
Solution: Upgrade your computer (drastic).
Try not to scroll in or out too quickly (that may help, and easier than an upgrade).

Seems Wally is dogging me today. Pfffftttt. Go for it, dude.

The 2D map is really useless, as Wally said. All the locations of the sidings are printed on top of each other. I use the F6 and F7 keys in the normal 3D view to find tracks and car numbers.

Solution: upgrade your PC? What? To scroll in and out, zoom in and out? Really? Not gonna fix what's broken inside the RW core program. You selling PC's these days>
